Reclamation of Terra Nova Gardens


Adventures of Old Nebraska DaveTemperatures are beginning to creep downward as Fall descends upon Nebraska. Leaf color change is in the beginning stages. The lush green continues because of unseasonable rain that has our accumulation well above average for the year.

What should be a month of slowing down of yard work and grass mowing has not happened this year. Weekly mowing continues with the first killing frost date only three weeks away for Nebraska.

Terra Nova Gardens is being slowly reclaimed for planting next year. Big changes are on tap for Terra Nova Gardens next year. Because of the total out of control year that just happened a new plan is in the works.

It's a plan that requires only half of the 12 beds to be planted with six beds not planted and things done to build up the soil for the next year. There's a lot of work to be accomplished before Spring.

As you can see Terra Nova Gardens is totally out of control. My time schedule this year just didn't fit into gardening. When I should have been in the garden I was out of town.
